Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Subtitle: Eine Untersuchung zum Erlernen lokaler Pr├Ąpositionen

Series Title: DaZ-Forschung [DaZ-For] / Deutsch als Zweitsprache, Mehrsprachigkeit und Migration 2
Description:

- A survey of current positions in research on language teaching and learning
and on acquisition of a second language
- From the theoretical perspective, places a focus on the theme area of
German as a second language
- Centers on concepts relevant to school environments

The book presents a qualitative intervention study that investigates the
hypothetically inferable effects of a specific form-related approach to
language teaching on the language learning processes of pupils in class 4 of
a Berlin primary school who are learning German as a second language.
Working from a theoretical perspective, current positions taken by research
on language teaching and learning and on second language acquisition for the
subject of German as a second language are specified and then brought into
sharper focus with reference to school-relevant concepts. The research
subject is focused on local prepositional phrases in the context of oral
accounts and interactions. The transcriptions serve as basis for investigating
the following questions: Does a cognitively stimulating, form-related form of
language teaching affect the children's language production? After the
teaching sequence has been carried out, can other signs of language
awareness be identified as compared to before the sequence? Are changes
apparent with regard to declination, syntax, semantics or in the area of
discourse? Which learning-specific and didactic insights can be derived from
the study?
